What To Do When You Get Overwhelmed

Posted on January 8, 2016

Firstly, it is of utmost importance to take care of yourself. It could be from taking a hot shower, eating a good meal, or even to going for a long walk, taking the steps necessary to unwind are more than essential. We all need the chance to unwind in order to function at our best, and self-care is mandatory for that.

Secondly, it’s important to be aware of the things that you’ve convinced yourself are important but can, in reality, be put on hold for the time being. Maybe it’s obligations at work or busywork that has no deadline. We all have these little things we convince ourselves to do that can be better accomplished at pre-appointed times.

Thirdly, you need to get plenty of sleep. I realize how easy it is to stay up past a reasonable hour cruising the Internet or doing something innocuous, but setting a routine for sleep can be extremely beneficial.

On a lighter note, life isn’t about stressing yourself out, it’s about finding those little joys. If you’re constantly overwhelmed those joys will be overlooked. :)
